Lifestyle, environmental factors and even medical treatment can all lead to excessive loss of moisture from the skin. This dehydration can result in a variety of uncomfortable conditions: dry, scaly or cracked skin, which may become itchy or inflamed. The goal of effective treatment for these conditions is to re-balance the natural moisture content of the skin and so improve the general well-being of the patient.
Key causes of moisture deficiency
Water is the most important substance responsible for supple skin. A damaged skin barrier leads to increased transepidermal water loss (TEWL), which results in dry skin conditions. These may be caused by various factors, including:
A moisturiser containing urea can be highly successful in counteracting dryness and soothing the skin
Urea: the body’s own moisturising agent
Urea is a natural moisturising factor that helps our skin stay properly hydrated. When TEWL is increased, a urea-based product can be applied externally, binding water, re-balancing hydration and helping to restore the skin’s smoothness and elasticity. Even very dry, stressed or elderly skin can be helped in this way.
